    Default On to more serious issues!

    Today is Indy's 9th birthday! We started by having his portrait drawn by Stephanie Sakowicz at the Cape Fear Hunt Test yesterday. I had watched her working and happened to have the photo I wanted to use on my cell phone. Within 25 minutes she created a brilliant drawing of Indy, emphasizing "those eyes" just to a tee! This morning so far he has had a pat of butter, two link sausages and we have plans for McDonalds later in the day. He is doing great health wise and is still a blast to train. Doubt I will ever have the nerve to take him to the line again, but who cares?

    Happy Birthday Indy.

    You definitely need to keep going to the line!

    I will Gooser, but with Chief, (the one you saw). I gave up with Indy a while back. My ego can't take the humiliation, and my heart can't take the strain! But he has taught me more than any person, book or DVD ever could and taken me all around this country to meet great folks I would never have met!
